Missing In Action

Artist M.I.A. is a Sri Lankan refuge, daughter of a freedom-fighter and an outspoken activist for the poor, the indigenous, immigrants and independent women everywhere. She has two albums out, Arular (2005) and Kala (2007). She is the exact kind of role model needed by the young girls/women in American (you know, as opposed to the stick thin, bleach blond, plastic, no talent, unintelligent ideal upheld as of yet).

Here is an interview with M.I.A. worth reading:
